The iPod Folder of Death

Anyone else ever get this?

It's showing a folder with an exclamation point, and isn't letting me access my files.

I'm fucked aren't I...

I hate those bloody exclamation points. You move something, and instead of being able to find it, iTunes makes you do it yourself. I hate iTunes. Have you moved anything? If not, try kicking your computer or something.

it's on the iPod it's self, and every thing on their exclamation folder of death page doesn't work.

my warranty expired like 3 weeks ago

how ironic.

apple's trying to fuck me into buying a new one... without the extended service warranty they want to charge me 278 bucks to get it fixed... a new one costs 300. fuck they couch.

Mine does that sometimes and I just have to disconnect it, close iTunes/restart my computer, then connect it and reopen iTunes. Sometimes it takes several times. My iPod is always fine, though, it's just iTunes being its crappy self.

Blech. I got that last week. Mine was still under warranty and I took it in to an Apple store and they gave me a new one right away, free of cost.

Hard luck.

some are misunderstanding the folder of death...

i can't access my iPod... at all. not just a folder, everything. the folder of death is what's being displayed on the iPod's face.


all the files i've purchased are on one of three computers... my old desktop at home, my desktop at work, or the laptop i'm on now... so thankfully i'll be able to reload everything once either figure this shit out or buy a new one... but it's still a pain in the ass... my ipod and me haven't been apart for more than a day or two. i don't know what i'd do with a prolonged absence

I got that once and the guy in customer service had me try a hard reset. Needless to say it didn't work, but thankfully my was still under warranty. I sent that one back and they sent me a new one.

Sorry to hear that you are having a problem with yours.

OOohhhhh I odn't like hearing all this iPod stuff. I cannot wait to get home to mine. Knock on wood, nearing 3 months and no problems. It is quite happy docked on its new iHome. I did get the 2 year ext. warranty though. I've not had any problems with my iTunes either. yet.....
